Are you happy with the industry you are in?
What would you like to improve?
What do you need? Where can you find it?
These are the questions that we have been asking ourselves from the moment we joined the industry, and we are still searching for solutions. You get your badge and are let out into the world, without guidance, without answers, and without the knowledge of what's available.
We were lucky:
Chris Bensted - “I met some great instructors, initially on Twitter, and then I started the first Facebook group for ADIs searching for a community. I’ve been networking ever since. These networks have opened doors and opportunities, also provided me education and tools. Not to mention some amazing colleagues and friends. Luck is where hard work meets opportunity, I’m proud to have created a lot of luck which I am looking forward to sharing.”
Ian Brett - “When I first qualified I was unsure about how to progress within the driver training world. The school I trained with didn’t offer me guidance on how to grow. Once I got my green badge their job was done. I grew my business to include instructor training, car and trailer, fleet training, minibuses and more but I had to make a lot of mistakes on the way which gets very costly. I want to be part of an industry that works together for the betterment of everyone.“
However, it is still isolated with many instructors (both new and experienced) not knowing where to turn or where to start. We want to change that...
Together we can produce change and develop opportunities.
A signposting point for the whole industry, supporting associations, companies, and products. At the heart of it are driving instructors, the life blood of the driver training sector.
Working together, united by a badge.
Nationally and Locally the world of the ADI can be a lonely one. Lockdown has taught us many lessons about both ourselves and our community. The DVSA position is clear and we need to take control of our own futures. We want to represent everyone, giving them a voice and platform on which to find and be found.
